The Women’s Distance Festival 5K takes place on Saturday, August 13th, at Frederick Community College. This women’s only event raises money for women’s causes, including Heartley House and Mission of Mercy in past fund-raisers. This year Women’s Giving Circle will receive 100% of the proceeds.
If you register before August 4th, the entry fees are $10 for students under age 18 and $20 for adults. Afterward the fees are $15 and $25. Pre-registrants will receive a T-shirt, and awards will be given to top finishers in several age categories, and there will be door prizes.
Whether you prefer to walk or run the distance, all are welcome. The Frederick Running Club has an online registration. Or you can print a paper registration form and send it in to the address printed on the form. Check out the registration form for more information.
